It was by faith that Enoch was taken up to heaven without dying—“he disappeared, because God took him.” For before he was taken up, he was known as a person who pleased God.
Good Morning Abba,
I just love being able to talk to You and ask the hard questions of my life. I know that You have nothing but the best in store for me and that sometimes the answers are long in coming. But, it’s still good to visit with You.
You have given us such encouragement with the people in Your Word and their stories. Enoch was just take by You, up to heaven, without dying. What a miracle that was.
But, what I love in this verse is, before he was taken up, he was known as a person who pleased God. You took delight in Him!
You make me think about myself this morning. Father, do I please You? I sure hope so, but I also know I make poor choices, turn a different way from Your leading and cause You heartache. Did Enoch ever hurt You? Did he make some bad choices?
I know living on this side of the cross, I stand beside Your Son and through His power, I am made clean. My bad choices are washed away. He has given me hope that I may stand before You and be known as a child who pleases You.
Thank You for being my God!
